A common issue in properties located at the heart of the city—limited space keeps being a persistent hindrance in getting the best out of your property.
This is apparent for people who rent out both empty rooms and fully furnished ones. But especially the fully furnished one. But not to fret, limited space is something that we can work with.
Get your creativity juice pumped and get to work sprucing up what limited space you have to a high-demand property.
Consider redesigning to a mezzanine style room
This is obviously not an option for everyone as not all rooms have sufficient ceiling space to get build a mezzanine. However, if your rooms allow it, don’t hesitate to go for it.
Mezzanine style rooms have become increasingly popular. Space upstairs does not have to be its own dedicated room. Making use of the available space to place a bed, for instance, would help make use of the available room very effectively.
An example would be making the use of mezzanine in a bedroom. Most of the time, the bed is the one piece of furniture that really take up the most space. Placing the bed above would not only save space but also create a much more “breathable” look for your small bedroom.
Having such a huge chunk of furniture “out of the way” is a single, super effective way of getting the best out of your space and in turn, increase the value of your property.
Wall-attached “floating” stands
These floating stands that are often attached to the wall is often a very useful feature when you’re short of space. These stands can be used as a substitute to a desk for storage purposes.
They are especially excellent as a place to put decorations on. A common example of these decors are the small potted houseplants. Even though your property’s not so big, that does not mean that you should forgo decors altogether. The key is keeping it simple with minimum clutter.
Maximise the use of dead space for storage. There are a number of “dead space’ or those that you wouldn’t be able to use effectively.
Bright colors are the rule to a spacious-looking room
Whites especially have that “widening” effect. It does not have to be the blinding ivory if you’re not quite fond of it. It simply has to be a neutral colour that stays consistent throughout the room—and even extended to the visible parts of the room outside.
Get your rental property’s room uncluttered. De-cluttering helps tremendously in maintaining a clean, tidy, and spacey feel of any room.
A major rearrangement of your furniture
If you’re renting a fully-furnished apartment that just looks plain claustrophobic, it’s high time to get your furniture arrangement going. Replace your pieces of furniture if you feel it’s necessary.
Do some repainting of the walls or the furniture to get the shades consistent, or at least, complement each other. A well-planned and well-designed furniture rearrangement go a long way.
